Nebraska Head Coach Mark Manning will also be traveling to Peru as a part of the coaching staff for the U.S. men’s freestyle team for the Pan-American Championships.

Green, a four-time U.S. World Team member, is a strong favorite to take gold in Peru. He has competed twice at the event, taking home gold in 2017 and silver in 2016.
